Friday looks like it will be an absolute bloodbath. Jak 3 AND Lumines Remastered on the same day?!
Well shit, TIL that there's a Lumines on PS2 (althought it's called "Lumines Plus"). Always thought it was PSP/Vita only. So is Lumines remastered a "best-of", or just an actual remaster of the first game? There's quite a few games from what I see on Wikipedia...
I assuming that Jak 1 is a more highly regarded game than the other two, as Jak II and 3 are more "edgy" which is why it was crazy expensive. Though I love all the Jak games, so I'm still trying to get the CE for all of them. Just need 3 and X.
I've been monitoring it for a couple months now, and I can practically guarantee scalpers are not going to be super interested in Jak 3. Jak 2 is barely sitting above MSRP.
Granted I started with Jak 2, then played Jak 1 and 3, imo Jak 1 is the blandest.
Don't know about recently, as I haven't ordered much since the hold system was killed. But pre hold system, 2 PS4 games was absolutely bubble mailer. I think I had some mixes of 3 PS4/Vita games that bubble mailered too. I doubt this sort of stuff changed for the better over the years.
this is one thing that really bugs me with CE's, they always come with vinyls now but in the rare case it does come with a CD it's usually just a sampler disc
At least Nicalis releases had a mini CD so it would fit inside the Switch case so it made sense. I don't see why a full size CD shouldn't have the entire OST.
I really wonder if it's more up to internet connection... I use a wired PC for every one of my purchases and never had an issue, beyond a couple of those Shopify errors/slowdowns from the past, where everyone had issues with it taking forever (and yet still managed to get in). That's why I've always wondered if it's the site, or does the fastest connection win?Grabbed regular Lumines and Jak to save on shipping. Glad I didn’t get into the Jak CE’s. I already had Lumines loaded in cart so checkout was really slow considering I was there in a couple seconds.
I feel like they need to grow up and have a real web store. This thing is too slow.
No it’s their server load. I was in today in seconds, 10-12 max. I’m on a 200Mb/s+ connection wired. And honestly my internet connection is crazy enough that it's constantly monitoring ping times to 3 sites around the US and if anything exceeds tolerances it automatically fails over to another ISP.I really wonder if it's more up to internet connection...

(Besides, at least you've never tried to check out on Pokemon Center when a very anticipated release comes in... enjoy the fact that sign in/add to cart/cart are all flash based and won't even WORK when the servers are full...)
I was kinda interested in trying out vinyl records just out of curiosity but apparently any turntable below $200 is crap =/
The Audiotechnica Lp60 or whatever its called is pretty good for its value. It's on sale for $89 right now. It's fully automatic too so you don't need to deal with any knobs or placement of the needle.
If they don't sell out they can always retcon them to frisbees.
